The 2012 MLB draft is fast approaching on June 4 and ESPN's Keith Law has put out his third mock draft. The Texas Rangers first round selection comes at No. 29 overall, and in Law's prior mock draft he had the Rangers taking right-handed high school pitcher Duane Underwood.
This time around Law has the Rangers sticking with a high school product, but it is an outfielder this time:
D.J. Davis, OF, Stone County (Miss.) H.S.
I'm hearing mostly prep players here and the willingness to grab any guy who should fall because of bonus demands. Davis is an intriguing athlete who is an 80 runner on the 20-80 scouting scale.
Over at Minor League Ball they have Davis rated as the 21st overall prospect, and they echo the same thing that Davis who has speed plus he has improved his hitting this spring.
